Related to Jane?

So, unbeknownst to me, my cousin has been doing genealogical research and discovered we are distantly related to…Jane Austen! I couldn’t be more thrilled. Maybe the urge to write is inherited :). Of course, there are probably thousands of people who are related to her (she had a lot of brothers), but it’s still cool.

Of course, he also discovered we’re even more closely related to Richard Nixon (11th cousins or something) ….But I’ll try not to dwell on that. Hopefully the urge for politics isn’t inherited (shudder) :).
